But by the looks of the images she's been sharing on Instagram, the Retford manor house has certainly been worth the wait.
36-year-old Carolyn – who is CEO of Mansfield Town Football Club – acquired the property with her husband, club chairman John, 52, back in 2011.
The property was said to be run down at the time, but Carolyn has transformed the nineteenth-century Barnby Moor Hall into a luxurious family home, with a wealth of personal touches.
These include Chanel scatter cushions, a magnificent walk-in wardrobe, lavish chandeliers, a swimming pool and a home gym.
Carolyn – who is said to have an estimated net worth of £8.3m – became the youngest CEO in the English Football League when she took over the club seven years ago.
The property is surrounded by 24 acres of Nottinghamshire countryside.
There's even a landing pad for John's helicopter.
